Albert from Sweden, living in Hamburg, Germany

Great shot! The colors and light are fantastic. The exposure is good, with perfect darkness in the foreground. The composition is also good, with the silhouette things and the fractal trees popping up to the left.

Craig McCord from Kansas City, Missouri, United States

Wonderful colors. I would love to have seen the result if you were to slow the shutter speed way down to smooth out the water. I wonder if it would have balanced in texture even better with the sky. Nice shot.

11 Nov 2011 3:23pm

@Craig McCord: I actually tried it a few times, but would you believe it was too bright outside? And unfortunately, I didn't have my ND filters with me.

I was listening to some nice song and could not resist saying a big wow for this photo.
Looking at life and wonder what was I tripping on never to go somewhere where these
vistas existed !! And yet its a lake scene, not some florida or tropic scene, we are not
that far apart at all. What I mean that life is too short, not to really have seen a lot of
these incredible sunsets, (this one spectacular) and here I walk away from life with
but a mere handful. Your work I love because you capture such vivid colour - this is so
spectacular and not an image that leaves the mind, some of your images ring constantly
in my mind, I thought of your theatre one yesterday evening, while no where near the
computer and not having seen it for a while. Magnifique.

@Phil David Morris 2011: All I can say is "Wow!"
